Saints Training Camp Recap, Day 4: LB Martez Wilson Leaves Practice With Elbow Injury

New, comments

Payton said afterwards that he didn't think Wilson's injury is very serious. Who Dats know from experience when he says that it means the player's injury could be anywhere from "not serious at all" to "we just fitted him for a toe tag." Let's hope Wilson's elbow will allow him to return soon. The Saints D needs all the pass rushers they can muster.
